We’ve all seen the perfectly staged home, the one that’s almost selling itself because it’s so cute and put together. Staging is a great option to quickly sell a home, but there is another way to put a little extra shine on your house to help it sell more quickly.
It starts, of course, with a couple of basic DIY skills, some elbow grease, and just a few hours of your time. You’ll want to take a critical eye and make some simple swaps—new switch plates, for example, cleaned-out closets—as well as spruce up anything that looks worn and tired. That may include an entryway (Remember that old adage about first impressions? It’s true.) as well as the paint in rooms, too. But follow the steps in this graphic and you’ll be surprised at how much you, and everyone else, loves your house.
